Electric Bus Update

“Pure Electric” is here! 
We’ve received the first three buses and they’re ready for service.  Be on the lookout for them on the road tomorrow (Friday, 2/2)!
The remainder of the fleet will begin arriving and going into service throughout the month!

Hello Anteater Express Passengers,

As many of you know, our current diesel fleet is scheduled for retirement with the introduction of a brand new fleet of electric buses. While we hoped to receive all of our new buses during Summer 2017 for a Fall Quarter 2017 roll-out, a significant production delay from the manufacturer, BYD Motors Inc, has required us to use our current fleet longer than we anticipated.

Our new buses will be larger both in vehicle length and passenger capacity, which is the reason why we made many routing changes that took effect for Fall Quarter 2017. We anticipate receiving the buses throughout this quarter beginning in mid-November and will introduce them into service as soon as possible.

We apologize for the inconvenience this manufacturer delay has caused and want to thank you for your patience. We look forward to having you all continue riding along with us as we complete our transition to a 100% electric bus fleet!

W Line Fuel Cell Bus Update

Some of you have inquired about our Fuel Cell bus, wondering why we haven’t been using it so far this quarter. Unfortunately it developed a major mechanical problem over the summer and we are waiting for a replacement part to be manufactured and shipped to us. The bus is currently scheduled to be repaired at the end of this month (October 2017) and we will be returning it to service as soon as possible. In the meantime, we will continue to service the route with our remaining fleet and will send an extra overflow bus during peak morning hours to assist in accommodating everyone.

Thank you for your patience and we look forward to having you continue riding along with us.
